Followup FL: Craigslist sale/robbery attempt leads to Gunfire

“From the interviews th at we received,I think that Barry felt they were going to try and get the phone back after there was the exchange of money for the phone, and that these two individuals may flee with both the money and the phone,” Engle said. “But that is purely speculation on my part.”

The store had about a dozen shoppers inside when the shooting happened just before 1 p.m. The store is south of the intersection at Griffin Road, a neighborhood that has three colleges nearby and is especially busy at lunchtime.

After retreating inside the CVS, Barry repeatedly asked clerks to call 911.

He “made discreet requests several times as he traveled through the front of the store, with Mr. Smith pursuing him,” Engle said. “The surveillance video clearly shows that Mr. Barry enters the store and that Mr. Smith is right behind him. It looks like Mr. Barry is attempting to get away from Smith.”

Barry, who has a valid concealed carry permit, pushed Smith and pulled out a handgun, Engle said.

Barry fired several times, striking Smith, according to Engle. No one else in the store was injured. Davie Fire Rescue paramedics took Smith to Memorial Regional Hospital in Hollywood where he died Wednesday night.
